LAFC confirm signing of free agent Gareth Bale

MLS side Los Angeles FC have confirmed the signing of superstar Welsh winger Gareth Bale.

Bale, who was a free agent after leaving Real Madrid at the end of his contract there, has signed a 12-month contract with LAFC.

Speaking to the club's official website, five-time Champions League winner Bale said: "I am extremely excited for this move to LAFC.

"This is the right place for me and my family and the right time in my career, and I cannot wait to get started working with the team and getting ready to win more trophies in Los Angeles.”  

LAFC Steve Cherundolo added: "There are simply not many players in the world who can have an impact on a match like Gareth Bale.

“He can be dangerous in so many different ways, and we expect him to complement what we believe is already a strong team from the moment he arrives. His knowledge of the game and experience in playing in big games will be invaluable for our club.”
